Less than a week after surprise-releasing a B-sides completion of her 2019 album "Dedicated," Carly Rae Jepsen is once again delighting fans by revealing she's already made another full-length album while in quarantine.

On the one-year anniversary of "Dedicated" last week, Jepsen shared the 43-minute "Dedicated Side B." Now, when speaking with the podcast "Switched on Pop," the "Run Away with Me" singer said she and her longtime collaborator Tavish Crowe are already done with a new LP.

"Tavish and I have already made an entire quarantine album and it is very different, it's kind of fun!" she said. "We had to do it around Zoom and things like that so it's been like a challenge but a really fun one.

You have more time to have space in between the decision your making and more time to kind of be away from the song for a minute, so I find it to be a whole new style of going at it, and I like it," Jepsen said.

The pop singer didn't reveal when — or if — she'll release the album. Last year, Jepsen revealed she made an entire disco-themed album called "Disco Sweat" that she said "will probably never be released, and shouldn't."
